Lightning Carson Rides Again - 1938 - Remastered Edition
- 53 min
When you meddle with Lightening Bill's family, you're only asking for trouble and it won't be long before the lawman comes looking for you. This is what a gang of no-gooders finds out when they frame Paul Smith for robbery and murder. The movie seems to have been made in a hurry, like all other low-budget westerns of the '30s, but it makes enjoyable viewing all the same. Tim McCoy, as always, is at his entertaining best. THE PLOT: When a gang of outlaws relieves Paul Smith of 10,000 dollars and frames him for murder and theft, his despairing mother sends for the only man who can help -her brother, Lightenin' Bill Carson. Carson infiltrates the gang as a fast- shooting, card- sharp Mexican. While hanging out with gang at Hogan's Saloon, Carson gains their trust. The money they had stolen from Paul is handed over to him for changing into Mexican currency. Carson lays a trap for the gang's boss, but his true identity is exposed just before he can lay his eyes and hands on the top hat.
